Limited Edition Mac Divine Night Holiday Collection 2013

Limited Edition 
Mac Divine Night 
Holiday Collection 2013
All 5 lipsticks from the Mac Divine Night Holiday Collection 2013
Mac's Limited Edition Divine Night Collection for the holidays is here! If you're reading this post now, well the collection has been out since October 17th in stores. Hopefully you were able to get what you wanted. Here are the products I purchased and my review. 

I received notification of the release via text but was sad to see that there was no pro discount. 
For those who have the pro discount, you know and probably are feeling the pinch since the Rihanna collection where there was no pro discount either. I hope that Mac is not going to continue with this trend on Limited Editions lipsticks and/or collections because at the $16.50 price point, it adds up.

This collection is perfect for the holidays though! 
Many items are great to add to your makeup arsenal and enhance your holiday look. 
For myself, I purchased the Limited Edition Fluidline Gel Eyeliner. 
I like when Mac releases unique eyeliner shades and the "Deliciously Rich" is a shimmering dirty taupe. Perfect addition to a smokey eye look!

Please note: typo on pics, should be 'Divine Night'.

Delicious Rich Fluidline Eyeliner Gel and Military Nail Lacquer
Kohl Power Eye Pencil in Mystery, Orpheus and Raven.
The "Military" nail polish looks chic and I can see myself rocking this for New Year's. 
It is a black matte with silver suede pearl.

And I also love Mac's Kohl Power Eye Pencils so I got Mystery, Orpheus and Raven.
They are all black eyeliners but with variations of colors and a pearl finish.
Orpheus is an intense black with gold pearl.
Raven is an intense black with red pearl.
Mystery is an intense black with green pearl. 
I already have Feline which is the best black eyeliner out there!

Onto the lippie review:
All lipsticks come in a classy matte black tube with gold on the inner tube.
The box is matte black with gold lettering.
Exclusive Event - taupe brown.

If you didn't get your hands on the Rihanna "Nude', this lippie fits the bill.
It is a greyish dark nude brown aka 'zombie lips'. The satin finish goes on smooth.
Very trendy color.

Rating: 5/5
Private Party - dirty mauve plum.

Another satin lippie that looks like a dirty mauve. Classy.
Rating: 5/5
You've Got It - pink undertone with gold frost.
Versatile frost lippie. Personally, I'm surprised. I tend to steer clear of frosts however I've come across some winners. I can wear as-is for a pale lip look or combine with liners and glosses totally transforming the color. This is also great to add on-top of other lippies.
Rating: 5/5

Here's why I really like this frost lippie. Combined with a liner, you can create new lip colors. I used the Raven eyeliner from this collection and blended together: I get a really cool frosty grey lippie. 
Adding a gloss on top makes it more interesting.
I used YSL #18 Golden Gloss.

Frostie Grey Lips: created using the Mac Raven, You've Got It and YSL #18.
Flair for Finery - cool pink/nude.
M.A.C. always throws in a nude lippie into all it's collections. This isn't a bad nude. But it's dupable. It's also a Lustre finish meaning it goes on sheer with buildable color but it doesn't last long. 
Also it doesn't look anything like the swatch on the maccosmetics.com site.

Prepare for Pleasure - clean magenta red.

This is a nice cremesheen red lippie. It's snazzy enough for holiday wear however being a cremesheen, it doesn't last long either. It doesn't look anything like the swatch on the maccosmetics.com site and M.A.C. describes this as a 'clean magenta red'. I took macro shots of this and there is gold shimmer. 
If you need a red or are just a lover of red lipsticks, by all means pick up this one.

Happy Holidays! Even if it is early!
Stay sweet lovelies.
